Hi
We are moving to Tenerife in April and having been to Los Gigantes on holiday several times we have always used the hotel gyms.As we will be residents rather than holidaymakers soon can anybody advise where there is a gym we could use and how much it is. We tried the Barcelo but that is for hotel guests only we are told.

Thank you for your help
Emma

  • Thank you for that information. I've been on the Facebook page but it doesn't really tell me where it is and of course it's all in Spanish.
    Can you tell me where it is. We have secured an apartment in puerto Santiago so this is good news.

    Thanks again for the info

  • The one I know is in Playa Arena.  If you walk up the road past the Hotel Belive Playa Arena and continue up the road a couple of hundred yards you will come to a public gym  You can see it here http://goo.gl/maps/Tbd4J  I have left it in map format so you can turn around, walk down the road and see exactly where you are.  Hope this helps.

  • In the search box in the top right hand corner of the Message Board Main page just type the word "gym" and hit search.

  • There are two gyms in Puerto Santiago, one the Pancrassio (spelling)' which is run by the Town Hall and the other one being on the same complex as the Playa De La Arena Hotel. The first one is well stocked, well maintained and popular, with indoor swimming pool, tennis courts, five a side pitch as the central fixture with all the activity areas round it, spin classes, weights areas, squash . There is no air con but a series of fans which the Spanish are not keen on so they tend to turn them off. Lower down the hill, at the side of the Hotel, is the Origen gym run by an English guy, Andy. This has air con, cardio area, two weights rooms and affiliated beauty treatments on offer. As pensioners with NIE we find this gym to be cheaper per month than Pancraccio and we prefer to have air con. Enjoy!
